Not wanting to tackle big issues on an empty stomach is something I adhere to religiously. With that in mind, let’s prepare 6 servings of quesadillas.
You will need 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, 1 chopped onion, ½ pound ground beef, 1 large can of black beans-drained and rinsed, 1 cup salsa, 12 large flour tortillas and 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese.
Take a large skillet and heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add onion and then add ground beef. Cook, stirring until the meat is no longer pink. Add beans and salsa and continue to cook, stirring for about 5 minutes. Spread tortilla with mixture.
Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Place another tortilla on top and press down.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and cook quesadilla until it is lightly browned on the bottom. Flip over and cook the other side until the cheese is melted. Transfer to a cutting board, let it rest for a minute and cut into wedges. Repeat procedure 5 more times and call it a day.
Pour yourself a suitable beverage, sit back and try to relax. I feel a letter coming on.
To the Congress of the United States:
There is no doubt that something must be done about the immigration problem in this nation. The situation at our borders and inside our country is out of control and the federal government is to blame. There has to be a solution, but this time I propose something quite novel. Work out a solution carefully, thoughtfully and keep the bill short, sweet and meaningful. The American people have quite enough of bills that are insanely long and complicated. The American people are tired of being told that we can’t really expect anyone to know what is really in a bill. As of now, the bill is about 1, 190 pages long. There are additions to this bloated mess that have nothing whatsoever to do with immigration. Why does the bill extend special treatment for Alaskan seafood processing? Why does the bill offer $1.5 billion for youth job training? Are you incapable of sticking to the issue at hand? Are you so sure that we won’t know what you are doing?
What’s missing from this bill is common sense. The first thing we should be concerned about is a secure border. We have the necessary laws already in place to accomplish this. What we need now is to see the laws enforced. We need the Obama Administration to stop interfering with their implementation. Keep it simple, Congress. Just enforce the laws.
The federal government should give their full unequivocal support to law enforcement in the border towns. Right now the government is tying their hands and by doing so, putting American lives at risk.
Congress must assess the cost to taxpayers for any immigration plan they attempt to enact. They owe it to the American people.
Wholesale amnesty is not the answer. There are over four million people patiently waiting to enter the United States lawfully. Some of these people have been waiting for over 20 years. Reform this process and get it right before you attempt to flood the nation with immigrants who will strain and drain our already ailing economy.
Congress...why not try a novel approach to governing. Think before you act and when you finally come up with a plan, Read It!...
